Central London

A walk from St John's Street Clerkenwell, Thu, 21 Feb 2019 by Basher Eyre

On an unseasonably warm February afternoon I set off from outside the ASLEF HQ to meander across the capital (via Mount Pleasant, Bloomsbury and Covent Garden) to reach my favourite shop Waterstones Piccadilly: this is what I encountered along the way!

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
